Operating Theatre Moving And Handling

Course Introduction

We can conduct more specialist training for operating theatre staff on moving and handling operations. The content can be tailored to your needs. As well as looking at general handling best practice, some common topics are:

  • The unconscious patient
  • Using manual handling aids – slide sheet, hover mat, pat slide patient positioning
  • Lithotomy position (legs in stirrups)
  • Turning patient from supine to prone (front to back)
  • Lifting and handling operating table attachments

We recognise that it is not easy to free up an operating theatre for the practical sessions, so we are very flexible in terms of timing to fit around your needs.
